Kayak Adventure 2007!

Today I went kayaking for the first time ever! It was great. The weather was great and the river was beautiful. I went with my dear friend Dianna and a new friend, Sarah. We went on the Iowa river (blue squiggly line below):

"I am a hairdresser, I heal people"

That wonderful line is from a good movie I watched with my roommates this evening, "The Beauty Academy of Kabul" which is about some women from the US who went to Afghanistan to start a beauty school. It is actually a great movie, but some of the US women were interesting...and funny.

Detroit Adventure 2007!



Here are some semi-exciting pictures:

And then some shopping at a cool grocery store that isn't in Iowa. The conference food is bad and expensive, so we bought lunch + exciting treats.
